Classical Guitar Magazine Amanda Cook interview with Guy Traviss 

"While  I was still a student at the Royal College of Music I first heard Slava Grigoryan play one of Bill's works and I was instantly drawn to his musical language. His music is very evocative and atmospheric and I was very moved and intrigued to hear more....... He'll use clever techniques and unusual harmony, but it is always done in a soulful way. The result is music with great poignancy and nostalgia. I believe that audiences appreciate that Bill has a fresh voice, but it is based on old-fashioned musical values... Audiences always respond strongly and positively to his music, as it emotionally reaches out to people even on first hearing. I have had people in tears after playing some of his pieces."
